First new song
Actually completed writing a new song today, the first in ten years. Quite happy: with the song, and the idea that there is a new song. Everything we’ve been playing as Shelves have been with old songs — either never been performed or, until recently, half-written. There hasn’t been any new material. So this is very welcomed.
The band heard an inkling of it a few weeks ago. All it was then was a riff and rough vocal melody. But it was enough to get us going with some momentum. Today I thought I would sit down and try write out the lyrics and see what kind of song it was. It took shape pretty fast, although the re-writes were many. Can’t wait to play this as a group. Too bad we can only meet again end June.
